Thanks for the link Bruce. While from an ecological viewpoint, I find the
length of the list to be scary enough, I think that the fact that most of
the species that I checked out listed the "impact of introduction" as
unknown is the even more frightening. Obviously, not enough time (read:
dollars) is being spent nationally on studying the impacts of this problem.
Since the effects of introductions are usually first noticed locally by
concerned and involved folks, this serves to really illustrate the potential
positive impact that NANFA members can have by being out in the natural
world and simply observing what's going on around them. Keep your eyes open
folks and be sure to spread the word if you see (or think you see) something
out of whack.
